WiseTech Global has acquired Belgium-based logistics solutions provider Intris for an undisclosed sum.
Based in Antwerp, Intris provides freight forwarding, customs and warehousing management solutions to the customers.
The company offers integrated software and cloud-based solutions to the customers such as Panalpina World Transport, Bollore Netherlands, Rhenus, Gosselin Support Services and AML.
Intris, which is the only Belgian integration partner for INTTRA eVGM, also serves logistics services providers in the Netherlands.
The firm provides TRIS forwarding and warehouse solutions that maintains integrated data flows from order to invoice. Its TRIS customs management system provides full customs compliance functionality, direct customs and port interfaces to European inland terminals.
Intris logistics software solutions will compliment WiseTech’s integrated global logistics platform, CargoWise One.
CargoWise One allows logistics service providers to carry out highly complex transactions in areas, including freight forwarding, customs clearance, warehousing, shipping, land transport and cross-border compliance.
The platform will also help to manage operations on one database across multiple users, functions, countries, languages and currencies.
WiseTech Global CEO Richard White said: “Bringing Intris into the WiseTech Global group is another step in deepening our reach and capacity in Belgium, one of Europe’s largest and most important trade gateways.”
Intris managing director Patrick Van De Looverbosch said: “This is the logical next step for Intris, as we are currently transforming our operations and technologies to better support the market and our customers, with whom we will continue to partner closely.
“With WiseTech’s global strength and significant innovation capacity invested locally, we will accelerate our drive to improve our customers’ forwarding, warehousing and customs management capability.”
